Edmonds Police are seeking public assistance in identifying suspects involved in numerous vandalisms to city parks.
Over $10,000 of damage has occurred to several parks and restroom facilities throughout the city, often causing them to be unusable and closed to the public. One restroom facility and structure were the victim of arson.
Police say the suspects have also left graffiti, including hate speech, symbols, and slurs. Incident locations include restrooms and other park amenities at Brackett's Landing North park, the Olympic Beach Fishing Pier, City Park, Hickman Park, and Seaview Park.
In the Seaview Park incident Jan. 21, three suspects were seen leaving the area in an older, maroon BMW 6 series convertible between about 4 and 4:45 p.m. One suspect was described as a light-skinned, Black male who was with two other males. All suspects were believed to be between 16-17 years old.
Police and City staff are asking the community to help identify the suspects in these cases.
If you witness vandalism or see something suspicious, call 911 right away. Police are also asking residents who live near Seaview Park to review their home video for any footage of the suspects or their vehicle.
